Double chin
Double chin

Having a double chin can reduce your confidence, as many people feel it can make them look overweight or older. In fact, you can be affected by a double chin and have a normal weight. Many people find no matter how much they exercise or how healthy their diet is, their double chin just won’t go away.

What causes a double chin?

Submental fullness (double chin) can be caused by the following factors:

  1. Ageing – fat distribution changes with age, despite a normal body weight. Fat under the chin can grow while other areas, like the cheeks, lose fat.
  2. Genetics – Some people inherit a predisposition to accumulate fat underneath their chin, even though their body weight is low or normal.
  3. Weight – Weight gain can also cause a double chin.
